No fun

So, I guess I'm allergic to Sulfa medication. I broke out in a horrible rash yesterday, all over, and called the 24 hour Walgreens in West Ashley. The dude there said it was probably an allergic reaction to the medication i was taking for an infection (which just happens to be the only drug that directly treats said infection). He said take 2 benadryl, and a Pepsid AC if i had any (wtf?). I didn't have any pepsid, so i kinda blew it off, but took the Benadryl anyway, and it knocked me the hell out. So, I survived the night, after being covered in calamine lotion, and called my doc this morning and they got me right in. The doc said right away he knew what it was (allergic reaction to the Sulfa medication), and gave me a shot (OMG) and a heavy prescrip of Prednisolone and advised me to get some OTC Pepsid. He said that drugs like that (pepsid, zantac, etc...) have a different type of antihistimine in it, and it really helps with the benadryl and the prednisolone. I was shocked, and happy to know that info. The picture i've posted is of my leg about 3 hours after the shot and the prednisolone. My leg was about 20 times worse, as far as being red and inflamed, so i'm glad this is ending. I volunteered for the shot (those that know me know this is unusual, kinda gives you an idea of how much agony i was in from the itching) and it started working almost immediately. I'm glad i did. The nurse really did a great job with it, it didn't hurt at all, until later when i put too much pressure on it. :) Luckily for me, the doctor did not prescibe me to wear a cone.

And a special shout out to my mom, who drove me to the doctor this morning when i was COMPLETELY unable to do so myself. I couldn't stand or sit still for more than 3 seconds, so she volunteered to help me out, and she stayed up late with me last night and helped me get calimine lotion on my back. And she hung out with me today when i was getting sleepy and really was a great mom. As usual. :) Thanks mom.

Goodbye Lighthouse, Goodbye St Simon!

I love living in charleston, and this is why.

This turtle is Lighthouse. He (or she) has a radio transmitter. The pictures you see of the other turtle is St Simon, and he (or she) does not have a transmitter. But Lighthouse was very spunky, and every time the volunteers would try to help them, he'd smack them with his flippers as if to say, "ALRIGHT GET OFF! JEEZ! I'm going already, leave me alone!!!"

There are simply too many pictures to post here, but you can click HERE and it will take you to my photobucket album of the release. It's really a very cool thing! This is not something we would've done if we were in wyoming, that's for damn sure. I'm so happy to have been able to be part of this, even if i was just watching. I wish them all good luck! Oh, and you can go here to check their progress, and if you live in the charleston area, you can check to see when they will have another release, donate money, adopt an animal, or watch previous releases. It's also on my list of linky dinks.

I just read this excerpt from the "sick bits" in my "bits i liked" section. I laughed out loud. I had completely forgotten about it.

Embrace your inner Yellow and Black

Those of you that haven't been living under a rock for the last few weeks are aware that there is a fire in Georgia. Well, several fires really. Well, recently, today, the smoke floated up to chalreston area. It was on the news last night that is was coming, so we all knew it. But we didn't know it would be this bad. Visibility is less than 1/2 mile, and it's disorienting. What happens to a bee when they get smoked? They get disoriented, and go back to the hive and gorge themselves with honey. I just don't have honey.

But i am disoriented and confused.

I'm disoriented because of the smoke, but confused because of other events.

I worked at a company for one week and had 38.5 hours on my time card. I was supposed to be paid last week on the 11th. I still have not received my paycheck.

So i called my company and said, what the fuck? Where's my money bitches?
They said: Well we sent it on the 10th, so it should have been there on the 11th.
Me: Well it's not, so can you put a stop payment on the check and re send it?
Them: It'll cost you.
Me: Why?! This is not my mistake!
Them: Well it'll cost you 33 dollars out of your paycheck to put a stop payment on it and resend it.
Me: I don't want it re sent. Obviously that's not working!
Them: Well we sent it.
Me: Do you see the logic in charging me for a mistake I did not make? Do you see that it is illogical to punish me?
Them: No.

I'm very frustrated. So i went there and picked up my check, and i signed up for direct deposit. I have to send in as well as fax my time card to these people, and it's very frustrating. I'm on my way to finding a regular job because seriously, This is just not working. I thought these folks would be more professional, but damn.

Maybe i'll get a bike like this...
And get like a Katana Scabbard for the bike. I don't think i would get a Hatorri Hanzo but probably the sword that O Ren Ishii katana. I like hers a lot more because it is a Shirasaya Sword, and those are my favorite. I'm really showing what a nerd i am now, huh? Oh well, I don't really care because if you don't know this by now, then you'll never never never know me, ooh oooh.

Ok, so i decided to put myself back to square one. I like the actual LAYOUT of this blog, but i don't like the backround. Sometime soon, when i have the time (which i do seem to have a lot of lately) I'll go through and try and find some kind of backround and template that fits me well enough that i'll be happy to see it every morning. I like the background and layout i had with my last template, but it just wasn't working for me, i didn't have all the bits I wanted. So... There you go.

Oh and happy birthday to my brother.

I'm on my way

In six months, i hope to be a licence carrying motorcyclist. I got my permit yesterday. I'm so stoked, and now i can practice legally. Hooray! This is the bike i'll be practicing on (one very much like it, the one i'm practicing on doesn't have a sissy bar) but the bike i want, i dont think i've found just yet.

This one is small enough for me, and i'd like to get something like it. I couldn't believe it when i went and got my permit yesterday. I'm not one that usually follows through with something like that. I've wanted a motorcycle since I lived in denver, so this isn't something new. But i'm very excited to start learning.

An american Doll

So, okay I wanted to write a lot more, and i just now realized it, but my keyboard fucking DIED on me. So what am i using to type this? Not the onscreen keyboard, no no no. This is far far worse.

an iMac keyboard from like 1998 that types like a fucking typewriter. The keys have to be pushed with such force that my hands hurt after typing for too long.

SO this shall be short and sweet.

Tori's album is... Well, right off the bat i've never related so much to an album. Before, it was I liked a few songs, i liked the tune, and only after a while did i treasure the album. This album said, "elizabeth, LISTEN!" I said in my last post that i thought i related most to Clyde. My preminitons were spot on. I could pick her songs out before i even knew their names. I also listened to the interview and concert on SIRIUS and she was funny and quick and her usual AWESOME self. Fuckin' hell. This is gonna be a great tour. I awnt to write so much more but arthritis is setting in.

In other news, I have the hiccups.

I will write more when i get a new keyboard.
